Shoelace Arms

From your belly lift your chest and come to your elbows almost as if you’re coming into sphinx pose.

 

From here bring your right elbow in front of your left and start to walk your hands away from each other towards opposite sides of your body. See if you can keep your shoulders even here and then you have the choice to let your head drop, keep it neutral or rest it on a block.

 

To exit the pose, gently walk your hands back towards each other, arms so the left is in front and repeat on this second side.
